Data from: Disentangling the roles of natural selection and genetic drift in shaping variation at MHC immunity genes

Jolene T. Sutton, Shinichi Nakagawa, Bruce C. Robertson & Ian G. Jamieson
The major histocompatibility complex (MHC) forms an integral component of the vertebrate immune response, and, due to strong selection pressures, is one of the most polymorphic regions of the entire genome. Despite over 15 years of research, empirical studies offer highly contradictory explanations of the relative roles of opposing evolutionary forces, selection and genetic drift, acting on MHC genes during population bottlenecks. Here, we take a meta-analytical approach to quantify the results of studies into...
